Maya - Copy (2).jpg

Yogis say that energy called Kundalini in a coiled form (snake) measuring 3 and half cubit length is located at the base of spine and for spiritual progress it is necessary to awaken this sleeping (Lina) energy which has gone underground (Kunda, lterally cave or a pit).

IMO it is same as saying that experiences through personalisation (refer previous post) have covered the Self and they could be said to be of primarily three types viz Sattva, Rajas and Tamas whereas the half bit is both the beginning and end of personalisation process making a snake swallowing its own tail.

It could be said to be another name for Maya.
